Catalonia vs. Spain



I wrote a book once called Investment Biker and in that book I made the point that I know of no country in history, in the world as we know it, that has lasted as long as 200 years with the same borders or the same government.

So, it would be normal if more countries continue to break up. We had at least 10 or 12 countries breaking up in the past decade or two. Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Ethiopia and Eritrea, Sudan recently, Soviet Union. You had a lot of countries breaking up and that is going to continue. That is the way it has been through out history. - excerpt from an recent answer to a question about the tensions between Catalonia and Spain
